    Hi,
    Does anyone know or have the same problem where pressing the F7, F8, F9 keys (which are previous, stop/pause, and forward) doesn't work in iTunes unless iTunes is the "active" window?
    I know that in OS X that if i pressed those buttons, it would do it even if I was in another application, but in the Windows 7 version it won't do it if another application is "active."
    Also, the same applies to the Apple Remote.

    It's exactly like you said, must be the active window in Windows.

    There's a program called iTunes Media Keys that allows you to map the keys to the play/pause, skip song, go back a song, ect. commands so they work when iTunes isn't the active window.

    Just google 'iTunes Media Keys download' and it should be the first link.
